Where do you get your news?
I'd put up a poll for this -- but I'm unaware of the procedure -- so if somebody else wants to run with it -- have at it....


Where DO you get your news??

Radio? TV? Internet? Newspaper? Magazine? Jungle Drums? Smoke Signals????


Myself -- I'd say about 50 percent of what I get is from the radio -- I listen to NPR quite a bit. The rest comes from TV (20 percent -- NBC and PBS) and internet ........

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

I like NPR while driving, some tv news (I bounce between the U.S. options), but catch the majority of the news via the internet.

Radio for general happenings. Interwebz for in-depth stuff. If I want local shit or sports, I just go into work and there's always some idiot screaming about something.

So, I guess the line up in order of relevance is:
Radio
Interwebz
Idiots

RE: Where do you get your news?
Primarily from online sources (Twitter, YouTube). I'll list some of the individual outlets below, in no specific order:

YouTube:
1. Secular Talk
2. Jesse Ventura
3. Philip DeFranco

Twitter:
1. The Young Turks (TYT)
2. Russia Today (RT)
3. Al Jazeera (AJA)
4. Fusion News

There's some others, but those are usually in my daily rotation.

Generally from the internet and even more generally from non-US sources since those mainly seem concerned with telling me who some 'starlet' I've never heard of is blowing.

BBC. Al Jazeera. Reuters.

Internet.

Kulturaliberalna.pl - comes also in english version.
Sometimes from The Guardian.

NPR, the local CBS affiliate in the mornings, the internet, including newspaper web sites, and my local town paper.

One of my favorite times of day is around 6 AM, when my husband, teenage son, and I all watch and chat about the morning news.

RE: Where do you get your news?
I mostly get my news from podcasts and my Facebook feed.

I also get a lot of my news from TV.

RE: Where do you get your news?
The Globe and Mail (print edition, delivered)
Le droit (local rag, delivered)
CBC (televised) and its Francophone equivalent, Radio Canada, for radio broadcasts
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart (of course)
HuffPo (for sh*ts and giggles)
TVO (The Agenda) and PBS (Frontline, etc.) for in-depth analysis
